Chris Covington, a 2-Star Rivals.com recruit is out of the Chicagoland area and brings great size to the Hoosiers at 6'2" 215 lb. Covington will probably be a hybrid safety/linebacker for the Indiana defense.
The Hoosiers continue to poach the state of Georgia. Defensive lineman Derrian Meminger is a 2-star Rivals prospect who was a late addition to the 2014 class. He also had offers from Louisville and Cincinnati.
Indiana was the only FBS school to offer Walker a scholarship, however he did garner interest from Georgia and North Carolina State.
Robert McCary III is a defensive end out of Georgia. He is unrated by the recruiting services, but has good size at 6'3" 245 lb.
On the field Redding looks to have the size, strength, speed combination needed to play for a BCS team. It would seem however, that Redding would likely redshirt his freshman year to develop his skills, allowing him to become a major contributor down the road. While he lacks that next level speed, his lower body stability will allow him to break tackles and be tough to bring down. He is a patient blocker who allows his offensive line to work with him. Redding is a between the tackle power running back. He has good upper and lower body balance which will allow him to move the pile and be a durable back, capable of playing in the Big Ten. He needs to learn how to run routes, and be a factor coming out of the backfield in the passing game.
According to the 247 Sports composite rankings, the 6'3" 290-pound Peach State prospect is the 105th ranked defensive tackle in the nation and the 150th best player in the state of Georgia. The 3-Star prospect had six scholarship offers, but he decided to pull the trigger on the lone opportunity that would allow him to play at a BCS level program
